Scalloping season begins on East End
The scalloping season on the East End opened last week and many bay men say it's the best in about 10 years.
Scalloping was one of the biggest industries in the area until the mid-1980s, when brown tide virtually wiped out the entire population of the shellfish.
The scallops have made a comeback since then.
Peconic Bay scallops are considered one of Long Island's greatest delicacies.
